Reflection 29RS

Hope everyone is having a great Saturday. Greg is going to show us our last Reflection for the week. The 29RS is a mid sized Reflection 5th wheel that gives us a ton of living space and an outside entertainment area.

Reflection 300RB

To continue our look into the Reflection line we are going to look at one of the best rear bath floor plans on the lot. The Reflection 300RB is an amazing floor plan with a big bathroom and washer & dryer connections.

Reflection 320MKS

We are taking a look into the Grand Design Reflection 5th wheels this week and to kick things off BJ is going to walk us through the Reflection 320MKS.

We have the pleasure of dealing with some of the best manufacturers in the industry and one of the best is definitely Grand Design. Their business model of “doing the right thing” has made them a company whose culture creates a long-term, personal connection with their customers, employees, and dealers. We are going to take a closer look at the individual brands we carry and why they are one of the top manufacturers in the industry today.

4 Creative Campfire Ideas

4 Creative Campfire Ideas

 

One of the best parts about a camping trip for me is cooking over the campfire. Take your campfire cooking up a notch with these ideas for a different take on some campfire staples.

 

1

 For a salty and sweet twist on a classic campfire treat

 try making your s’mores with Ritz Crackers instead

of gram crackers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2

Craving bacon but don’t feel like getting out the cast iron skillet.

Try putting your bacon on skewers and cooking it over the

campfire.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3

An easy way to cook crescent rolls is to simply wrap them around

something and cook them over an open fire. Take your time,

turn them ofter and you will end up with a crispy outside and

a perfectly cooked center.

If the you manage to save a few marshmallows from the s’mores

we made earlier when you put the kids to bed you can try this

boozy take on a roasted marshmallow. Just dunk your

marshmallow in Bailey before roasting and you now have

a Drunk Marshmallow!
